network and video problems after reinstall


I have reinstalled slackware 13 and have some problems.

1. I configure network with dhclient, and after restart I have no internet and have to configure again.

2. Slackware start in init 3, I login, type startx, and after logout from KDE the fonts are very dark. I can login again but when get back in terminal almost nothing can be readed. Only after restarting computer fons get readable.

Previous xorg.conf didn't work so i get that from my ubuntu distibution, which is OK.

here is xorg.conf file

Code:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Slackware does that automatically. you shouldn't need to run dhclient manually after the boot. take a loot at /etc/rc.inet* scripts. check their permissions if they can be run and such. check /etc/rc.inet.conf, maybe they are misconfigured.

X version comes with Slackware 13 needs almost no configuration. it configures itself using hal and kernel. and if you have xorg.conf, it overwrites the values X found. check CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT in Slackware CD/DVD. it has valuable information.

I know that it configure itself automaticaly. Previous installation was ok, but after reinstall fonts are not displayed. I even try to reinstall one more time but with no result. I also review CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT but don't know what to do.

Any other help on 2 ?
